With item nr. 2 we make a jump in Kirsten Flagstad's career. Kirsten Flagstad had her debut at the Metropolitan Opera in New York in 1935, and her final season at the opera house in 1952. The then director Rudolf Bing gave her this trophy as a thank you for her outstanding performances at the opera. "To Kirsten Flagstad from her friends of the Metropolitan Opera who present this token of their profound gratitude for her magnificent performances." Below are her roles inscribed. This trophy is now on display at the museum.
